CLASSROOM & OFFICE SUPPLIES

OME-RESA Classroom & Office Supply Program – New Extension 
 

Vendors:  Friends Office, Frey Science, Nasco and School Specialty
Pricing February 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021

 

New OME-RESA Classroom & Office Supply Pricing will begin on February 1, 2020.  We have accepted a one-year extension with our current vendors that will be valid thru January 31, 2021.  This means that items are still awarded to the same vendors as last year but much of the pricing has changed so you MUST download a fresh sheet for any orders.

 

=               If you are open to purchasing from multiple vendors, you may use the filter option on the spreadsheet and choose “1” from the pull down arrow in the Rank Column.  This will show only the lowest price only for each item.  (Simply go back and choose “all” under Rank to have all items appear again.)

=               Any pricing that went down is now in Green.  Any pricing that went up is now in Red.  Keep in mind:  even though the price may have went up or down – it may have only changed by a few cents.  In many cases just because an item when down in price it may not be the cheapest item when comparing to the other two vendors. 

=               Most of the vendors have updated their Bid Reference Number.  You will find this information on the first tab labeled Contacts.  This Bid Reference number should be included with all orders to insure you receive the correct pricing.

=               If you’d rather use each Vendor’s website and order directly online instead you may.  If you do not already have your account setup with the OME-RESA Pricing/Discounts please contact the vendors directly to do this for you prior to ordering.  Vendor Contact information can be found on the first tab of the spreadsheet.  Read more about ordering options hereThis is actually the easiest option for ordering – the order is submitted quicker, you will not need to manipulate the excel spreadsheet and you can order ANY item on the vendor’s website.

=               Please remember you will receive a general discount on almost anything else you wish to order from our vendors that is not included on the spreadsheet.  To view discount amounts and exceptions please  review the “Contacts” tab on the bottom of your Excel Classroom Supply Sheet. 

=               If you need help or a refresher on how to filter your spreadsheet prior to printing your order, click here for Step by Step Directions and Special Tips.

=               You may order as many times as you wish throughout the year as long as you have a $50 minimum per delivery drop.

=               You may submit individual orders per building/classroom/teacher or however you wish as long as each meets the $50 minimum order.  This way you will have orders delivered and packed appropriately and you will not need to sort them out.
